Sunday Propers

 

ScholaThe General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM) was introduced by decree of the Second Vatican Council, published by authority of Pope Bl. Paul VI and further revised at the direction of Pope St. John Paul II. The GIRM is the detailed document which governs the celebration of the Mass in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite. There are 5 sacred texts in each Mass which vary from Sunday to Sunday or Feast to Feast known as the Propers. They are the Introit, Gradual, Alleluia/Tract, Offertory and Communion. The GIRM details the options for how the Propers should be sung – the pre-eminent option being to sing the Propers set to the Gregorian Chants found in the Roman Gradual. The Solesmes monastery has been the official publisher of the Gradual since 1903 with the last edition of the Gradual published in 1974. When the Mass is offered in the Extraordinary Form (1962 Missal of Pope St. John XXIII) the 1961 edition of the Gradual is used. The Gregorian Chants according to both versions of the Gradual are often identical when there is no difference in the liturgical calendar. When singing the Ordinary Form it is permissible to sing only some of the Propers, however, when singing the Extraordinary Form all of the Propers must be sung along with all of the Ordinary.

Over the course of this liturgical year we will be uploading all of the Propers for Sundays and major feasts, which may be downloaded and printed double-sided, on a single A4 sheet, and folded to an A5 for convenient use. If there is only one link below on a given day, this means that the Propers are identical in both forms of the Roman Rite for that particular Sunday or feast.
